Your Kokua Is Needed to Save Land!

HILT is starting another Membership Challenge, but this time, to include not only Staff and HILT Island Council members, but also the general public!

Membership is the foundation which helps provide long-term sustainability for our organization. It is essential.  With that said, we are encouraging the participation of HILT Staff and Island Council members, along with the general public to bring in at least 10 new HILT memberships each by year-end to help grow our membership program so we can protect more important lands in Hawai‘i.

Participants in HILT's 2015 Membership Challenge have an opportunity to not only help HILT protect more land, but also win exciting prizes!
